HOPE’s mission is: To provide volunteer opportunities and resources for Teichert employees in all of the communities in which we live and work, and to bring employees together for a common goal.
One of Teichert’s greatest strengths is giving back to the communities in which we work. Teichert employees have always been excited and willing to help support families, children, the infirm, and underprivileged to build strong communities. HOPE provides employees with the opportunity to make contributions as they feel appropriate – whether by contributing time, money, expertise, or resources – all types of participation are welcome.
REBUILDING TOGETHER SACRAMENTO SPRING REBUILD DAY
Once again HOPE supported the Spring Rebuild Day through Rebuilding Together Sacramento. RTS’ initiative is to transform the lives of low-income and disabled homeowners by improving the safety and health of their homes and revitalizing their communities. One of their initiatives is Rebuild Day, in which they revitalize between 10-15 houses in a neighborhood through the generous time and effort of many volunteers. It takes place twice each year and Teichert has supported the April project for many years through donations and employee volunteerism.
We have continued to partner with Rebuilding Together Sacramento to help transform the lives of low-income and disable homeowners by improving the safety and health of their homes in an effort to revitalize communities.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer
The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks raise awareness and funds to save lives from breast cancer. Each event is a noncompetitive 3 to 5 mile walk that brings people together to make a difference for everyone who has been touched by breast cancer. The events raise money to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and to help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it’s most treatable.

Ice Cream Safari
Teichert’s HOPE Committee partnered with the Sacramento Zoo to bring joy and ice cream to our community.
